    W000p! You fixed it! And for each and every filetype too!
    Thanks a lot! This just made may day...

    Just out of plain interest (as i have been wondering this ever since i noticed the vast amount of fixes/information on this site)... are you a programmer or do you consider yourself a very advanced system administrator?
